It takes only a few minutes to rig up one of these toy sailboats.
Gently pinch one short end of the loaf pan to shape the boat's bow and then re-straighten the sides of the pan, if necessary.
Press a 1 1/4-inch-wide ball of clay onto the center of the boat floor, sticking it securely in place.
On the report cover, draw a triangular sail (about 7 1/2 inches high and 7 inches across the base).
Cut out the sail, fold it in half vertically, and make a tiny cut into the fold 1 inch from the top, and another 1 inch from the bottom.
Unfold the sail.
Cut a 9 1/2-inch length from the bamboo skewer and thread it through the holes in the sail.
Insert the mast bottom straight down into the clay.
Make a small hole in the bow and tie on a long piece of fishing line for maneuvering and retrieving the boat once it's launched.
